Wiley Digital Archives BAAS Collection


The British Association for the Advancement of Science (BAAS) was founded in 1831 to promote the advancement of science in all its aspects. Its main aim was to improve the perception of science and scientists in the UK. In 2009, it was renamed The British Science Association.

British Association for the Advancement of Science (Collections on the History of Science: 1830-1970) is part of the Wiley Digital Archives programme and was developed in collaboration with Jisc. It contains an aggregation of collections from the BAAS as well as archives contributed by a number of UK universities which are complementary to the BAAS collection.
